Bebop Spoken There

Paquito D'Rivera: "...nor is jazz widely taught in schools, and that students (and sometimes their teachers) believe that Louis Armstrong was the first man to set foot on the moon." - (DownBeat March 2021)

Archive quotes.

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".

Sweet Thursday - The Choice is Yours

Next Thursday (Oct. 18) offers an embarrassment of riches - it's the 3 bus syndrome once again.
SSBB at J's and B's in Fenham. A new venue for this amazing big band and one that deserves the support of all big band fans - I mean just the idea of listening to a big band and drinking beer in a church brings out my irreverent side.

However, for those who think it's sacrilege, there's a 'Fresher's Jam' at Bar Loco on Leazes Park Rd. with members of NUJO. Those who heard the young students at the Dun Cow on Wednesday will tell you that the standard is high.



If you lean towards the more contemporary end of the spectrum then JNE present the Olie Brice Quintet at the Jazz Café. Mike Fletcher (alto sax); George Crowley (tenor sax); Alex Bonney (cornet); Olie Brice (bass); Jeff Williams (drums).
